I have been making progress on February’s UFOs.
The latest I have worked on is Deb’s Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. Mind you, I didn’t quilt this, it is from before I got my longarm, but I have had it sitting around here for 9 years waiting for me to get the courage to put the binding on. Isn’t that horrible? Some friend I am…..!
I actually have all the binding machine stitched down to the front and have about half of it hand-stitched already. I should be done with it within the week. Finally. You can’t even begin to imagine how huge a weight this is off my conscience!
I feel I have done really well with all my UFO goals for this month. The first quilt was my small green and white 9-patch (pieced, quilted and bound this month) which now sits on the vanity in my bathroom. The second quilt was Mini-me’s dinosaur quilt. The top is finished and I had really hoped to get it quilted this month, but customer quilts take priority and I have two to finish before I can put Mini-me’s on the machine. I still consider it a finish for the month….The third quilt I wanted to work on was Deb’s GMFG, and as I said before, I am pretty much done with it…just the handstitching while I am watching TV with the kids.
A bonus quilt was putting together the Jelly Roll String quilt from finished blocks to flimsy stage. It is packaged and ready to quilt when I have a free moment or two on the machine. You can see a post about each of the quilts but Deb’s Grandmother’s Flower Garden here if you would like to read more about their finishes.

Overall, a very successful month…but now…what to do in March?
